Any suggestions on how to keep my cat away from my lily plant?

According to the Cat Fanciers’ Association, all parts of these lilies are considered toxic to cats and consuming even small amounts can cause severe poisoning. If there is a lily in your home, there is always the chance that your cat could be accidentally exposed. For this reason, cat owners should avoid exposing their cats to plants of the Liliaceae and Hemerocallis family.

It’s unlikely you will convince kitty to leave the lily alone. So you’re best bet is to relocate the lily plant to a place your cat cannot get to. This may be challenging, because cats will climb just about anything to get to something attractive.

Or, if the above doesn’t work, you might consider giving the lily to a friend and replacing it with a lovely silk look-a-like. Your cat will certainly leave that one alone!
